bool "initramfs for initial ramdisk of linux kernel"
depends on BR2_LINUX_KERNEL
Integrate the root filesystem generated by Buildroot as an
initramfs inside the kernel image. This integration will
take place automatically.
A rootfs.cpio file will be generated in the images/ directory.
This is the archive that will be included in the kernel image.
The rootfs in the kernel will always be gzip'ed, regardless
of how buildroot's cpio archive is configured.
Note that enabling initramfs together with another filesystem
formats doesn't make sense: you would end up having two
identical root filesystems, one embedded inside the kernel
image, and one separately.
